The government is under complete Republican control, yet has been dragging its heels to come up with a comprehensive budget without wasteful spending. Previously, during the Obama administration, Republicans blocked any efforts for him to do the same, by objecting to increases taxes for the wealthy and tax breaks for the middle class. Now it is an unnecessary border wall that is blocking a budget agreement...border security, yes...wall, no. Democrats need to stand their ground, hold down needless, wasteful spending, but keep the government running. Republicans need to realize that their tax scam has increased the deficit, while decreasing revenue, mostly from corporate tax cuts. Budget resolution must come with a reversal of their tax scam, putting real money in the pockets of the 98% who stimulate the economy from the bottom up. Corporate profits increase as a result. They just have to compete for consumer dollars, creating a healthy economy.
